During the reign of Mustafa Kemal, the Turkish people have advanced significantly, and Turkey has come close to the Western countries in terms of living standards and other indicators. For this he received his nickname – Ataturk, or `` the father of the Turks. ''

Architects from Turkey won the competition for the best design of the mausoleum building Ahmed Orhan Arda and Emin Khalid Onaton. Due to financial difficulties, it was not possible to build the second floor of the building.
The complex includes a museum, a park, some other buildings and, of course, the mausoleum itself.
The mausoleum combines modern and ancient architectural features, it was built in the styles of the Hittite and Anatolian eras. Most of the interiors are finished with tuff and marble.
The Mausoleum complex is divided into three parts: the mausoleum itself, the ceremonial square and the central alley.
The body of the Turkic father rests in the lower part of the structure, right under the slab in the hall of honor.
